The No. 2 Folding Brownie was introduced in 1904. The model B was introduced in 1907 and the camera was re-styled Folding Pocket Brownie. It was slightly smaller than the earlier model, and had 'buttons' to release the back rather than a sliding catch. Early versions, and those for the US market, of the model B had red bellows later they were black. Production ceased in 1915. The price was 21/- in 1910.
